  1. I'm using firmware 2.70 and the latest version of Network Manager. I am using the USB Wifi from the Hak Store. I am running the pineapple off of a 1Ah battery and the USB hub off of a 2Ah battery. The module does not bring my wlan1 up. I have to manually issue the command ifconfig wlan1 up. I go into Network manager and change my settings to connect to an AP. I click save, then commit. When I click commit I get this and wlan1 goes down. Any ideas? Network Manager radio0 wlan0 enabled radio1 - enabled [/CODE]
  2. http://erratasec.blogspot.com/2010/09/apples-secret-wispr-request.html Other devices do this also. Kindles to for sure but I don't have one or any saved packets to see what page they access.
  3. What about changing it to If someone port scans it and sees 1471 then they might try to connect to that port and be greeted with a logon box. Having to add /pineapple would make it a little more difficult. Weak security through obscurity but any little helps.... ...and on the other hand maybe /pineapple isn't a good idea either. It gives it away that it is a pineapple.
  4. I upgraded to 2.6.1. I always got the time via 3g. Tonight I connected it to the internet with the lan port and was unable to get the time. I didn't have time to troubleshoot it.
  5. I never had a problem getting the time. Are you sure it has a working internet connection? You will also have to edit the TZ file to set your correct time zone. I think it is in /etc/TZ but I'm going by memory and not 100% sure.
  6. SCP in and modify the /etc/config/uhttpd file Locate the lines: # Basic auth realm, defaults to local hostname # option realm OpenWrt Remove the comment from the option realm line and you can change OpenWrt to whatever you want option realm NotAPineapple [/CODE]
  7. Give this a try: put "sleep 10" in /etc/init.d/fstab file after "START=20" and this waits 10 seconds before mounting giving it time to settle in.
  8. Does anyone know how to mirror the LAN port from the WAN port? What I am trying to do is to monitor all wireless traffic in realtime from Wireshark. (I want this in realtime so I can't use tcpdump.) The pineapple gets internet from the WAN port. I used network manager to set up the internet sharing to br-lan. I would like the LAN port to be a monitor/mirror port to see the wireless traffic. I did some googling and came up with the following iptables commands but it doesn't seem to be working. Any ideas, please? iptables -A PREROUTING -t mangle -j ROUTE --gw --tee iptables -A POSTROUTING -t mangle -j ROUTE --gw --tee
  9. I thought I knew a lot about wireless and networking. Then I got a pineapple and realized that there was so much more to learn. I learned A LOT more from playing around with it.
  10. Some mobile apps (like Facebook for Android) will not work at all when sslstrip is running
  11. Maybe it has something to do with the hub still providing power to the USB device. Maybe the host side resets but the device never does. If it makes any difference my USB hub backfeeds power into the pineapple. I never got around to snipping the red wire on the data cable. My company uses a lot of USB UARTs powered only by the USB bus. They are buggy and sometimes loose connection to the computer. Unplugging and replugging the USB cable fixes the problem but it is usually easier to tell them to restart the computer. However I noticed on some computers the USB ports never seem to loose power and the reboot never fixes the problem. So now I tell people to completely power off their computers, wait a few seconds and then power it back on.
  12. I have the same problem. I have to pull the power on the pineapple and hub to do a reboot in that situation.
  13. I have a reverse SSH tunnel set up from my Pineapple to a DD-WRT router acting as the relay. I use PuTTY to SSH into the router (port 22) then from there, SSH into the Pineapple (port 4255). Is it possible with PuTTY and DD-WRT (Dropbear) to make this a one step process similar to "ssh root@ -p 4255" so I only have to SSH once? Also, is it possible to tunnel HTTP through this connection using PuTTY so I can have my browser connect to PuTTY as a proxy then directly access
  14. Are you using any plugins/ infusions when this is happening? When you cannot access the web interface can you ping it or SSH in?
  15. Find a short USB extension cable and circumcise that instead of cutting directly into the hub. If you snip the wrong wire you won't rune your hub.
  16. Correct. I'm aware of the disclaimers, etc. I have gotten nothing but education use out of the pineapple so far. My knowledge of everything 802 has increased greatly. I was just curious if mobile devices are as trackable as regualr internet connections. It is my understanding that cellular mobile data connections are sent through some type of proxy/NAT server before going out to the internet with a bunch of people sharing the same IP.
  17. Battery capacity is measured in milliamp hours (mAh) or amp hours (Ah). 1 Amp = 1000 milliAmps. Basically this means that a 3000mAh can provide 3000mA or 3A for 1 hour or 1000mA or 1A for 3 hours. (It is actually less due to resistance and overhead but its a good ballpark number). The somewhere on this form lists how much current (amps) the pineapple draws. I remember it being something like 700mA for the pineapple only and up to 2500 (I think) for a pineapple with other devices attached to the USB port such as another wifi radio or 3G dongle. So with just the pineapple only the 3000mAh battery should last you theoretically a little over 3 hours. With the pineapple running at full load it may last a little more than 1 hour. I would also suggest a battery with 2 USB outputs so you can power the pineapple and a USB hub at the same time. Make sure one of the outputs is at least a 2A output for best results.
  18. When using a pineapple and 3G what are the odds of someone noticing that they are getting pineappled, recording the external IP then filing a complaint with the cellular provider? Then you get a knock on your door. The 3G seems great for remote administration but is it safe to use to provide internet access to the masses?
  19. I frequently work in remote areas where my 3G dongle does not get reception inside a building. I leave the pineapple in my car (plugged into a USB cell phone charger) with the 3G dongle attached. I then connect to the Pineapple's WiFi from inside. You can edit your /etc/config/wireless to enable encryption and change the channel. Here is part of my /etc/config/wireless (truncated) config wifi-iface option device radio0 option network lan option mode ap option ssid "SSID Name Here" option encryption wep option key 1234567890 [/CODE] Remember to backup the file first. You will need to revert back if you want to use Karma.
  20. It would be nice to kill processes via the web interface. If I want to kill something I either have to SSH in or go to the resources page to find the PID then back to the advanced page to type in the command to kill it. Maybe either a link next to the PID to kill it or a text box where we can enter the PID and a kill button.
  21. It has a .7A and a 2A output. Which do u plug the pineapple and hub into?
  22. It appears that each access point has its own subnet. I'm not sure why but it seems to me that it would defeat the purpose of roaming between them. If you want to learn more about the different subnet masks and subnetting Google 'CIDR'. As far as connecting to them give this a try: http://www.ghacks.net/2009/04/14/connect-to-a-wireless-network-via-command-line/ If you have the key remember to use the s: prefix if the password is plain text (ASCII). If it is numbers and a b c d e f then it is hex and don't use the s: You also need to know the channel number of the AP you want to connect to. Use 'airodump-ng' to find the channel. Select an AP with the strongest signal strength. The numbers are negative and higher values are better. For example -70 is a stronger signal then -90.
  23. What interface do you set tcpdump to monitor on?
